What We Love:

Water Blessings are a traditional Cambodian practice that date back to ancient times. You'll be driven to an ancient pagoda, nestled in the beautiful countryside outside Siem Reap where you'll have a choice of two rituals. The first is almost a taster: a blessing accompanied by a light sprinkling of water. The second is the real deal: you'll be completely covered in water blessed by the monks (don't worry, you'll get a sarong to change into for the experience), whilst the monks chant in unison. At the end of your blessing, you'll receive a special red tie that signifies the ritual that was performed. This is a unique experience for individuals but can also be a special way for newly weds to celebrate their union as it's said that the blessing brings peace and happiness.

Traditional Water blessing is a must try! thanks to our guide Lim who is very good at answering our queries reg the activity and the culture of the people in Cambodia. :)


Great Experience to get in touch with Traditional Khumer Culture by a professional tourists guide, who provides us lots of information. This tour is really good and more than what we expected. Thank you very much.


My husband and I have always wanted to try this traditional Cambodian practice since the first time we visited Siem Reap (5 years ago). It was great that we booked this activity because we got so much out of it because our guide was able to thoroughly explain the entire process of the water blessing and it's cultural significance - it make the entire process so much more meaningful.
